A couple of minions painted the cobbles of Temple Bar an eye-popping shade of banana early this morning.

Kevin and Stuart are in town to promote their upcoming flick Despicable Me 3 by staging a jail break and heading on the run across the city centre.

As part of their schedule of destruction they decorated part of a street in the tourist hot spot with yellow paint.

Unfortunately, a truck drove over their handiwork, and another parked on it, before they finally managed to get their shot posing on their makeshift yellow brick road.

Behind the scenes Dublin City Council granted permission for the lads to do the damage to the street, although the film's publicity people assure us that the naughty minions will have it all cleaned up again by this evening.

After Temple Bar the duo hit Moore Street in search of bananas before heading to Croke Park to steal Liam and Sam.
